Forget strong, chemical cleaners for your oven.

Baking soda, a powerhouse against tough stains, can help you achieve a spotless oven.

Here's an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide.

Step-by-Step to a Clean Oven

Step 1: Start by removing all trays and racks to easily reach every nook.

Step 2: Mix around 0.6 ounces of baking soda (around 16-17g) with four tablespoons of water. Aim for a thick, creamy paste for the best results.

Step 3: Smear this paste over the grimy spots and let it work its magic for about an hour. For tougher grime, you might want to let it sit for a few hours.

Step 4: Use a damp sponge to wipe off the paste and enjoy your clean oven.

Preventing Oven Messes

Keep your oven pristine with these tips:

  • Use baking paper and appropriately sized dishes to prevent drips and spills.

  • Clean spills and splatters right after using the oven to avoid tough stains.

  • For stubborn, burnt-on spots, you might need a special oven cleaner, but use these sparingly due to their environmental impact.
